74 degrees downtown. the normal is only 67. the pollen count is due mainly to the storm yesterday, way down, the lowest i can remember this spring. expect that to creep up tomorrow as the dry weather returns. you can see the left over clouds from the shower is living through. they will move back towards morning and temperatures will continue to cool. lo 50's into northern baltimore county. we will see a 43 degree temperatures spread at dawn with a temperature -- with winds at 5 miles per hour. that storm yesterday was weak but now it looks impressive in the atlantic. this allows this week front to slide down across the state. as it is making its way through, a sprinkle left over and high- pressure for friday. but over the weekend another high moving storm.
once that gets here, shower chances will linger into next week. tomorrow will be a decent spring day and saturday is looking better. clouds are holding off to our west. the deeper into saturday we go, especially saturday night, our rain shower chances will go up. maybe even some thunder factored in on sunday. 65-71 tomorrow with west winds at 6-12. a beautiful day in western maryland tomorrow. very minimal chance of sprinkles. almost 70 degrees at the day. on the eastern shore, a nice looking friday. out on the day tomorrow, winds coming out of the west. 50 degree water temperatures at the baltimore harbor. your 7 day forecast, 69 tomorrow with a 60% chance of rain tomorrow.

number 5 to kansas city, eric berrry out of tennessee. the orioles enjoy their first day of of the season. they received a vote of confidence. next 11 games comes against the red sox and yankees. at least they did not have a sergio kind of day. then at 16 , out of the rough. he would actually make park, but acts like a spoiled 12-year-old here as the ball goes into the woods. maybe some poison ivy would be appropriate. i will say at least he did not send his caddy into the mess. garcia is one of the best players in the world never to have won a major. it finishes the first round eight shots back.
rain looks like it will be later in the evening going deeper into saturday night. maybe even some thunderstorms on sunday. if we are lucky we get most of saturday without a brain. it is a slower-moving storm so the chance of showers will interests into the middle of next week. -- it will reimburse -- lingers into the middle of next week. >> it depends where you are. if you would like to see this again we have it on wbal.
